Magpie #42

I had always sought after,
Recognition,
Acceptance,
And praise.

But now I'm learning,
Self-worth,
Intrinsic value,
And pride.

Trophies often tarnish.

  1. Trophies are odd things...I say leave them to school athletes. As you've written, they really don't age all that well, do they?

  2. They don't age well at all. Thanks for reading Fireblossom.

  3. Yes, those lovely intangibles are what it's all about.

  4. Very nicely put, Kevin... Trophies may get old.. but those virtues never really die.. They (the latter) are the REAL trophy!
    A thought provoking little piece!
